My half marathon PR came when I trained well and at the race I saw a guy that had a t-shirt that said Boston Marathon Pacer 7:00 miles.  I thought I would hang with him as best I could – for some reason it didn't occur to me that he would likely run this faster than his paceing duty from Boston.  I hung pretty well with him but he was well ahead of 7 minute miles.

I can see the benfit of a rabbit if you are trying for a PR – but I don't believe in them for races.
